Meet our team at TheFork: Alex Karafiloff
Meet Alex Karafiloff, Business Development Manager (Sydney) at TheFork Australia.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
As a child I wanted to be an actor. As I got older I wanted to be an investment banker - completely different than my childhood dream!
Tell us a little about your career progression to this point
I started working at Woolworths when I was 16 – I was desperate to start earning my own money. When I finished studying I started working in real-estate for a local agency. I then moved to Sydney and started working in the Eastern Suburbs. I had various roles in real-estate but found my niche in Business Development.
Why did you join TheFork?
I love being able to connect with new clients and help grow their business. I’ve always been intrigued with how businesses can utilise technology to grow. I also love how TheFork actively showcases restaurants and helps diners discover new places. Being a part of a company that helps connect diners and restaurants is exciting!

I love trying new restaurants but my go to is usually Matteo in Double Bay.

My best food related experience was eating at this family owned restaurant in Amalfi, Italy. The food was amazing!
